In-Person Domestic Staff Training
So a first option for training is actual in-person training. This would mean you and a trainer would physically meet either at a training venue or your work/chosen space. You would then go through all the training options under the mindful eye of the trainer. They would be there to correct you, encourage you. and showcase any skills that you need to go over.
In-person training can either be in groups or private training. The good thing about a group training course is that it is more cost-effective than personalised 1-1 training. But it depends on what you need. And what you want to get out of the training. Perhaps you have very specific skills you need to learn. Or they need to be applied in the household you work at. Then a tailor-made training course might be much more beneficial. As you will get exactly the training modules that are right for you.

A second option to consider is online training. Online training can be a great alternative when in-person training is not available. But besides that, it is a great standalone option to consider too. Online training nowadays offers a great alternative for in-person training. You can do it from the comfort of your own home. Or wherever else you are in the world.
You completely control the timeline too. Unlike in-person training, you can stop and restart the training as often as you like. If you want, or need to, take a break for a week. You can do that. And simply pick up where you left it the last time. There are many interactive elements to online training too. From videos showcasing skills, to quizzes and assignments that will be graded by professional trainers. With online training, it gives you our your staff more freedom to undertake training courses.
